County OKs appointments to panels

CROSSVILLE — County commissioners approved several appointments of members to committees during September's county commission meeting.

Resolution 09-2013-12 — a resolution to appoint Larry Allen, 6th District commissioner; Donnie Buttram, E-911 emergency communications director; Sandra Brewer, 3rd District BOE member; Stanley Hall; and James Perry as members to the Cumberland County Ethics Committee for terms to expire Sept. 30, 2014 was approved in a 14-2 vote.

It was approved after a motion was made by Caroline Knight, 2nd district commissioner. Knight's motion was supported by Mike Harvel, 7th District commissioner. Commissioners Harry Sabine, 1st District, and Roy Turner, 7th District, voted no.

Resolution 09-2013-16 — a resolution to reappoint Sabine; Nancy Hyder, 2nd District; Johnny Presley, 3rd District; and Harvel as members to the Financial Management Committee was approved. Presley and Harvel and Carmin Lynch, 9th District, abstained from the vote. Allen Foster, 4th District, voted no.

In other areas the county commission unanimously approved resolution 09-2013-13 to extend the Cumberland County Red Cross lease agreement through June 19, 2014 for space in the Archives Building.

Also approved unanimously was resolution 09-2013-15 — a resolution that reaffirms Cumberland County's commitment to justice and equal treatment for all of its citizens.

Resolution 09-2013-14 — a resolution to extend the lease and agreement with Downtown Crossville Inc. was tabled and referred to the building and grounds committee for further study because DCI may be moving into the old Snodgrass Building which is now owned by the city of Crossville and is being upgraded and repaired.

The building and grounds committee will research and discuss the issue and bring it back up at a future county commission meeting.
